LOT invite you to our Quantum Design PPMS Applications Workshop which is being held at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratories, Oxford on May 8th and 9th 2013. Due to the great success and responses to the last years workshops and Quantum Design measurement systems, we will hold more user meetings in 2013. This two day workshop series is dedicated to actual PPMS users, no matter if you have years of experience or if you are a starter in using the world’s best PPMS. The workshop will deal with application presentations and we would like to focus on discussion with and between the users.

The workshop is a good opportunity to discuss your own work and ideas and get valuable feedback and tips from other scientists. Neil Dilley, Ph.D., PPMS application scientist from Quantum Design, San Diego will give presentations and will be available for discussion. The agenda will be finalised shortly.
